David Hayter, writer of “Watchmen” and “X-Men”, has found the two leads for his directorial debut, the werewolf horror flick “Wovles”. Lucas Till (left) will play the young hero of “Wolves”, while Jason Momoa (“Conan The Barbarian”) will do the film’s bad guy honors.
Based on a script by Hayter, “Wolves” will star Till as Caleb Richards, “a young man who transforms into a werewolf and finds himself falsely accused of murdering his parents. He goes on the run, eventually arriving at a small town named Lupine Ridge that has a history of supernatural happenings.”
That’s where he meets Momoa, playing the “badass werewolf patriarch of the town.” Well, if you gotta be the patriarch of some place, mind as well be the badass version, I always say.
It’s interesting that Momoa seems to be getting a lot of bad guy roles now, especially since his stint as the hero on “Conan the Barbarian”. He played a sorta good/bad guy in “Game of Thrones”, and will next be seen swinging an ax at Sylvester Stallone’s head in “Bullet to the Head”. I guess he just has that “bad guy” look about him, which was really one of the reasons why I thought he was so good as Conan.
Till, of course, played Havoc in “X-Men: First Class”, and as far as I know, is expected back for the sequel as well. He was also in “Battle Los Angeles”, but if you didn’t notice him in that one, that’s fine, because neither did I until I checked his IMDB.com page.
“Wolves”, scheduled to shoot soon for a 2013 release, will co-star Merritt Patterson and Brandon McGibbon.
